    I worked at Connect full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great Co-workers: mutual abuses bring people together

    Cons

    The management treats you like dirt, it's a toxic, shady culture, the pay isn't competitive, you see good people being fired for no reason with no explanation. I am a generally positive person who was nearly broken by the way I and others were treated by this company.

    I worked at Connect full-time

    Pros

    Pay is the only pro

    Cons

    Terrible management. Terrible communication to employees. President changes his mind 3 times a day. Completely unprofessional and hostile environment. EVERYONE needs training- everyone is out for themselves and will stab you in the back in a heartbeat. I've never met a more fake, disgusting group of people in my life. They have no morals and will do anything to get a dollar from a client even if that means screwing over the client. Do not work for this joke of a company- you will be in constant fear for your job.

    I worked at Connect full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers for the most part There's a Panera nearby

    Cons

    People are fired often and you don't know why. You always feel like you could be next. My nerves couldn't take it anymore so I found another job. There are some iffy business practices going on. I'm not sure if management doesn't know any better or simply doesn't care. Even though I worked in editorial/content which is mostly women, it's still very much an old boy's club. It's a toxic, uncomfortable environment for women especially.

    I worked at Connect full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    High compensation for successful sales growth. Fun industry, conferences, and events. It was a great opportunity for me to prove my worth in sales.

    Cons

    Poor management. Sales are largely dependent on territory and my territory was switched up many times (several times per year in some cases. Company has lost hold on its competitive advantage.

    I have been working at Connect full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fast paced, fun, great people, amazing industry to serve and work in, great challenges, and the team is empowered to try new things.

    Cons

    Things at Collinson Media change quickly and new products are launched quickly. Everything makes sense and serves our clients and customers but everything isn't always communicated across the board.

    "Do NOT believe the positive review on 8/18"

    I worked at Connect full-time

    Pros

    This goes to show how shady the company owners are. The review written as "Confidential" on 8/18 is obviously a fake because the company does not even do business as "Collinson Media" anymore: it is now Connect Meetings and has been for many months. Even their website redirects that way. So anyone coming to write good reviews -- or ANY reviews -- now on THIS page under THIS company name are obviously just trying to boost the company's image.

    Cons

    A company that stoops so low to write ridiculous fake reviews on a website is someone you definitely want to think twice about joining. They care more about their appearance to others than actually treating their employees right.

    Pros

    Pros? Sorry there are none unfortunately.

    Cons

    They are super shady. They are trying to be slick and changed the name (now Connect Meetings) of the company which is NOT a good look. Take several seats, please.
